Sami Zayn makes his way to the ring. “OLE” chant for Sami. Sami has a mic and says that he is not proud to come out here and tell everyone how many times I’ve watched the footage of the 2/3 Falls match against Antonio Cesaro. And I’m not proud to tell you that I’ve lost sleep over watching that match and obsessing over all the little details. My entire career has been about moving forward, its about moving on to the next challenge and for the first time in my career, I can’t, I’m stuck. I’m stuck on a moment and the sickest point of it all is that I can’t pinpoint just exactly what that moment is, no matter how many times I watch that footage, I just can’t figure it out. I was a breath away, a moment away from winning the most important match of my career and still, I can’t figure out where I went wrong.
Cesaro’s music hits and he makes his way onto the rampway. Cesaro says for Sami to stop, its actually starting to sound pathetic. But, let me answer that last question for you really quick while I’m here. There was never a moment, there was no breath, there was absolutely nothing that you could have done that would have made any difference whatsoever. That match was always mine to win. Just get over it, I’m better than you. You’re drving yourself crazy, you’re obsessing over this match. Couple of facts for you. I am better than you. That doesn’t mean you won’t have a great career, you will have a great career……….down here. You can beat any competitor that you want, you just can’t beat me. So, let me give you a piece of advice because you & I have known each other for quite awhile, so let me help you out here. Get over it, unless you choose to look at our last match as looking into a crystal ball of your entire career, your entire life. Close, but no cigar.
Zayn thanks “Dr. Cesaro” for that psycho-analysis of my inner psyche. You seem to know me pretty well, but I know you pretty well and we go back a pretty long way and not just in NXT, but many years back, all over the world. I respect you, from the moment I met you until now, you have been a workhorse. You work yourself to the bone, you’re a true competitor. You’re on RAW & Smackdown, live events all over the world. You’re here in NXT when you don’t have to be. You will fight anyone, at any time, but yet, you won’t fight me. So why is that?
Cesaro says it must not get inside Sami’s thick skull, but how many more times do I have to beat you until you realize that I am better than you? Sami says just one more time. One more time, you prove it to yourself, you prove it to me. And hey, if you beat me, you’re just proving to yourself what you know already. Or maybe it won’t go down like that because maybe you’re afraid because we bring out the best in one another and maybe you at your best can’t beat me one more time. Cesaro asks about Sami’s injured knee and Sami says its fine. Cesaro again asks about the knee, asking if its medically cleared and Sami again says its fine. Cesaro says if he accepts to one last match with Sami, can I have your word that there will be no excuses when I beat you again? Sami says Cesaro has his word and extends his hand. Cesaro thinks about it, but as the crowd chants “pinkie promise”, Sami extends his pinkie. Cesaro thinks about it, but then says his answer is still no and he kicks Sami in his injured knee.
Cesaro leaves the ring, but then the music of WWE COO Triple H hits and he makes his way onto the rampway. Triple H says that maybe Cesaro does not want this match, but the crowd does. And more importantly, I do. And while Sami Zayn’s knee isn’t 100 percent right now, I have it on real good authority that it will be by February 27th. Which means on February 27th live on the WWE Network, Antonio Cesaro will face Sami Zayn because that is best for business.
Tyle Dillinger vs. “The Moonchild” CJ Parker
Dillinger takes down Parker early and applies a front chancery. Hammerlock applied. Parker counters out with a snapmare, followed by a back senton. Parker with an Airplane Spin.
Third Eye for the win.
Winner: “The Moonchild” CJ Parker by pinfall (The Third Eye)
Afterwards, Parker has a mic and asks why don’t you people love me? Do you know what I do for you, for our world? I reduce, I reuse, I recycle. You’re looking at a guy that drives a fuel-efficent 2013 Ford Fiesta that get 40 miles to the gallon because I care about mother-earth. And you “sheeple” boo me for that? I should be booing you. You’re the ones melting my polar ice caps, you’re the ones burning a hole in my o-zone. You’re cutting down my trees, you’re poaching my animals, you’re spilling oil all over the place. This world’s going down the tubes and its the NXT Universe’s fault. Because you are incapable of loving. You don’t love the Moonchild, you don’t love the world and you don’t love yourselves. From this moment forward, the Moonchild don’t love you neither.
Main Event: The Wyatt Family (Erick Rowan & Luke Harper) w/”The Eater of Worlds” Bray Wyatt) vs. Jason Jordan & Marcus Louis
Harper & Louis start. Harper backs Louis into his corner. Chop, Rowan tags in. Rowan with a stomp and a back club. Fallaway slam, followed by right hands in the corner. Rowan chokes Louis while Harper tags in. Harper knocks Jordan off the apron, then Rowan with an avalanche.
Discus clothesline by Harper for the win.
Winners: The Wyatt Family by pinfall (Discus Clothesline)
Afterwards, Bray comes into the ring as the Wyatts bring Jordan back into the ring. Bray hits Jordan with Sister Abigail. Bray gets a mic and says that grown men tremble by the sounds of our footsteps. Souls cry at the mere thought of our presence being felt. This world has already been laid victim to all my poisons. But we have never forgotten where we came from. NXT has and always will belong to the Wyatt Family. Follow the Buzzards!
